Kites: Movie Review

Five stars to the movie's creators for not dumbing down the story or dialogues. It seems to be a de jure requirement for moviemakers to assume the audience to be bozos.

A wonderful medley of Hindi, English, and Spanish. What daring!!!

Contrast: I recall a scene in a movie where a lady was wondering about the nose interfering with the act of kissing. What horseshit!

Kites has no story of course. Well, really?

Well, the hero asks the heroine if she loves the guy she is marrying? And she replies 'I love his money.' That's real life!

We get to visit some exotic locales too. No bombastic, oversimplied lectures about changing the world.

All in all, a good movie. And it does not drag for three hours. I certainly enjoyed it. Perhaps because I got the ticket for free.

Currency Stories: India and China

I am skeptical about all the song and dance about the falling rupee. Is India's economy on a fundamentally different trajectory than China's? What is the direction that the experts are hoping India's economy should take? What is going to be the path of India's development? The weak rupee probably makes it costlier to go on those frequent trips to Davos -- at least for the private sector who have to pay for their trips themselves. In all this tsunami of talk about the collapse of the rupee, we seem to have all forgotten about the China story which otherwise somewhere seems to be there almost as an alter ego.
